Warrior Games 2018

U.S. Air Force retired Lt. Col. Melissa McAvoy strikes a pose with her bow before archery finals at the U.S. Air Force Base Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado, June 7, 2018. McAvoy was first introduced to the Air Force Wounded Warrior (AFW2) program in 2017, after suffering from complex post-traumatic stress disorder which stemmed from a sexual assault early in her career and was exasperated by the threat of landmines, harassment and multiple assaults incurred while being the only woman (and most of the time the only American) forward deployed in Ethiopia.
